Suleman points to drugs

Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES – Octuplets mom Nadya Suleman told celebrity doctor Drew Pinksy in an interview that she was drugged when she signed a consent form giving her fertility doctor permission to transfer 12 embryos.

“He wrote something, he gave it to me to sign,” Suleman said during the HLN interview. “I signed it, and I didn’t read it.”

She said she was on a “cocktail of drugs,” including Valium, for treatment of health problems.

The California Medical Board on July 1 revoked the medical license of Beverly Hills fertility doctor Michael Kamrava. The panel ruled that Kamrava “did not exercise sound judgment” in the transfer of 12 embryos to Suleman.

Suleman gained notoriety after she gave birth to octuplets in January 2009.
